Cleanse day 5

Fairly good day, but with some heavy emotions running wild. I felt better later though.

I have noticed that the bumps on my elbows are starting to smooth out. They were hard bumps similar to my son's psoriasis that he gets.

Today all I had so far was some carrot-apple juice, a spoonful of raw honey called "Apitherapy" and water, and some sun tea.

I had a surge of energy when I was making dinner for my family for Israeli night which was huge baked potatoes, Israeli salad and Yemenite pancake bread. Equal half says that everything tastes better when I'm on a fast, LOL.

I ran around a bit but then I crashed and had my sun tea. I just don't think I can over-exert myself.

Cleanse day 4

This morning had my carrot-apple juice and a lot of water, some honey sticks and delicious sun tea I made (strawberry-white tea, fresh mint, lemon balm).

We ordered our Spiroolis from Hallelujah Acres - can't wait to get them. Their shipping was very reasonable too.

I can feel my stomach pulling in, a feeling I often get during fasts and liquid diets. I bought this coconut water at Whole Foods yesterday, I'm going to have it after Taekwondo tonight.

I got back from Taekwondo - I don't remember ever sweating so much. The coconut water was okay, but not as good as fresh from a coconut. It had a sour-ish taste and I wonder if it was heated in any way.

Cleanse day 3

Woke up clearer headed again. Last night we started watching some DVD's from the 24 season. There are 4 shows on a DVD and somewhere during the 2nd show my head starts hurting to the point of unbearable pain. I could only sit through 3 shows. However the shows were really good - a raw buddy recommended them to me!

Had 2 cups orange juice in the morning, then water and a honey stick here and there.

Did some shopping and met Kim at a couple of kitchen stores - she was looking for the Spirooli but they aren't anywhere to be found in the Springs. Then we headed over to Whole Foods for a bit. Picked up a bottle of Honestea Mango White.

Equal half and I took the kids to see "Shaggy Dog" which was better than I thought it would be...Adam now fasts with me on Mondays (I am still on this modified fast though) so he took along honey sticks too. I am so proud of him!

Tonight we watched the last show of 24 on Season 1 disc 3, but then discovered that disc 4 was split on one side, so called it an evening.

Cleanse day 2

Woke up feeling a lot better - had to brush and scrape tongue an awful lot though. I really like the Dr. Tung's tongue scraper because it has a sharp edge and does a great job. The plastic ones don't do much for me.

Carrot/apple juice...then lots of water.

Went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo where we fed the giraffes and walked around for over 3 hours. Boy was I tired. I brought some honey sticks with me so I wouldn't pass out though! Brought some healthy snacks for the fam but they ended up at the cafe, and though the food smelled wonderful to me, equal half said it tasted pretty bad!

Cleanse day 1

Another beautfiul Colorado morning.

Detox - woke up to some back and head pain and nausea. Headache progressively got worse all day long until at night it was so bad I thought I was going to throw up.

Been drinking watermelon juice all day and had a spoon of honey.

Friday May 26, 2006

My friend and I just signed a 1 year raw commitment to each other. My progress will be recorded here.

We agreed to eat fruit/fruit meals until dinner and limited dehydrated foods, fats and nuts. I have cholesterol issues and my friend has weight issues so we are pretty much on the same path.

Menses started today on day 26. Experiencing a lot of irritability at this time - I am planning on juice dieting tomorrow.

Start weight 154.2

So this is what they feed the sick patients in hospitals.
